I have finally updated my black edition using official INS update. My baseband version was NA4. I have updated it via ODIN 3.9 and downloaded firmware file from SAMMobile. So far so good, completely revamped phone. I like it. My baseband is now changed to I9500DDUHOA1
Only loss is set of wallpaper is now like normal S4 version.
If you want to do it do it at your own risk. I have followed safe approach but still risk is yours

Shreya s4lover, 15 Feb 2015Thank you so much:) your answer really filled me with positiveness ...I'll wait patientlyMy pleasure!
Make sure to update all installed apps.
Go to play store >swipe the left side hidden option panel >My apps, then check for the apps which have gotten newer versions as most of the app developers have started working for the Lollipop environmented version!
And if you have not done the update via OTA, then do a factory reset, and then make fresh downloads and installation of apps.
Make sure to have a back up of the data on your internal memory!
Have a great day ahead.

Whatever happens I am not going to install lollipop bcoz of the battery issues unless a fix is provided by samsung in near future. So dont be anxious about lollipop. Kitkat is good.
